Question about Intel 865G Motherboard

2 Answers

Help! I cant figure out where to connect my power switch and other reset and led connector to my motherboard. The description found in my motherboard seems not clear. ''4-6 Power switch'', ''+2-1 HD_Led'', ''+5-1 SUS_Led'', ''+3-1 Power_Led'', nothing more. The pin arrangement look like this [::::.::] blank means w/o pin.

Look at your front panel connector that goes to your motherboard, there should be a small text there explaining what is the cable/connector for.
For Power Switch there might be "PWR" text, for Reset Switch, there might be "RST", etc.

Now you have to plug the connector to your motherboard pin as you draw above.

At the pin location, look for pin with "white triangle drawing" that should be pin number 1.

While for 4-6 Power Switch thats mean you have to put the Power Switch Connector to pin number 4-6.

For +2-1 HD Led, you have to put positive(+) connector to pin number 2 and negative (-) to pin number 1

and so on ... give it a try ...

Hi.

You can download the manual for your motherboard here.

Inside you will find information of where does each connector go. Each connector on the case has a marking on it (HDD, PWR, RST or similar) which stands for hard disk LED, power button, reset button and so on. Connect it to the right place, and problem is solved.

If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask.

CONNECTOR PROBLEM


Usually the connectors will be marked as in the picture, indicating their usage. 07471ce.jpgIf your connectors do not have a label printed on them you can figure out the important ones. You will have a pair of connectors each for the power switch, the reset switch, the power LED and the hard drive LED. 
The two pairs of wires used for the switches are the important ones. They can be identified with a circuit tester or multimeter (Check for resistance/Ohms). When they are pressed, the meter should indicate a connection across the two wires. In the case of the power switch if it's a really old case it will toggle on and off, so watch for the continuity to change when you press it. Otherwise the reset and power switches will only register a connection when pressed, and revert to an open circuit when released. Use your multimeter to identify which pair reacts to which swtich, and label them with some masking tape and a sharpie (or equivalent way). 
As long as you identify these two and connect them correctly you'll be okay. The LEDs are not essential to booting your system and you can figure them out later. LEDs have to be connected the correct way around (usually the white wire is negative), while the switches don't matter which way they are connected as long as it's to the correct two pins. You can connect the LEDs and see which ones light up on your panel to determine which is connected where. If your power-on LED lights when there's hard drive activity, then you know that the connector plugged into the pins for HDD LED is the wires for the power LED, and so forth.

Hope this helps.

translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection

Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection

Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.
